Hi everyone! I am involved in PA student government at my school and I've taken on the project of starting specialty interest groups for my fellow PA students. I've already gathered data regarding which specialties everyone is interested in pursuing. For those of you who are involved in student specialty interest groups, what exactly do you guys do when you have meetings? Do you have lectures, a hands-on activity, a group discussion? How often do you meet? We're a brand-new program, so I'm setting these up for the first time and any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!! PS - Sorry if this thread has already been posted elsewhere!
Greetings Everyone, My name is Chris and I am brand spankin' new to this forum and I had a very early question regarding the idealization of specialties and the actuality of specialties once PA school is nearing its end. Right now, I am finishing my Junior year of undergraduate school. Based on GPA, relations, involvement, etc. I have the opportunity to produce a potentially competitive application for PA school. With that in mind, I have a few specialties I am interested in (neurology, research, psychiatry, and vascular surgery). The part I am most confused about is what qualifications allow one PA vs. another to be able to specialize? I constitute specializing as serving as a PA in a specific field of medicine outside of clinics and general medicine. Do things such as where you attended PA school, come into play? I understand this may be a very naive sounding question, but I am trying to get the gist of the process in order to prepare myself accordingly. Any advice on this matter is welcome, particularly from those who are on the other side of the PA fence and who currently specialize in a specific field. -Chris
